I would like to use the foldername of a folder of which the contextmenu is clicked to be used as a variable in the script that is called by clicking on the item in the contextmenu.  Can this be done with FSO.GetBaseName ?

You won't get the complete path in that manner...

I'm not sure I understand exactly what you're trying to accomplish.
Could you, perhaps, post a code snippet (I'm a visual-guy ;)

I just wanted the foldername returned when an item was clicked in the contextmenu.

I did it the following way,  it works

Dim arg, fso, shell, Oldfoldername
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
arg = WScript.Arguments(0)
Oldfoldername=fso.GetBaseName(arg)

The following has bee, used.
Dim arg, fso, shell, Oldfoldername
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
arg = WScript.Arguments(0)
Oldfoldername=fso.GetBaseName(arg)

I created a reference in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell to start up the script with %1 to be able to send the arguments to the vbs.

Guess I still don't understand what you're after with this - but to the closing moderator - I have no problems with the closure, and since I'm the only other one involved - no reason for the 4-day wait... :^)
Glad you got it working..
